I want my drivetrain to last a long time. Are there any tricks to smooth shifting on an e-MTB?

While Shimano’s HYPERGLIDE+ 1x12 drivetrains offer very smooth shifting even under the load of EP8’s 85Nm, we recommend only shifting one gear at a time (up or down the cassette) and try to back off the power through the cranks a little as the integrated torque sensor will immediately react and also back off the motor’s power. Trail mode is much more intuitive with this than Boost mode. We recommend saving Boost mode for cranking straight up big climbs

where gear shifting is limited.
